Fine Early Ohio Tablespoon by A. G. Peck of Ashtabula, Circa 1820-30
click for details
Offered is a very good and large early American coin silver table spoon bearing a period engraved script monogram and a maker's mark of A.G.PECK. Little is known about the silversmith behind this mark, although an A. G. Peck was listed by Knittle as working in Ashtabula, Ohio circa 1823. Such a date would certainly fit this piece, which could have been made in Ohio based on style. It should also be noted that an Asahel G. Peck, silversmith and jeweler, born about 1820 and died around 1904,... Click for details

Measuring 7" long and weighty at nearly 1.5 T. oz., this fork is marked "J.P." for New York's John Polhamus, "Patent 1855," and with the retailer's name, Pittsburgh's "J.B. McFadden & Son." It may be a tea, dessert, or lunch fork.

Dating somewhere between the early 1850s and mid 1860s, this 7" long, weighty at just over 1.5 T. oz., fork is stamped "Gorham & Co." and "Coin." It likely was a tea or dessert fork, although it could have been a lunch place piece.

The markings are not readily found, and while a standard motif for the period, the "French Thread" pattern was not one that Gorham seemed to produce in significant quantity, so this is a doubly unusual piece.

It is engraved "A.L. Fiske." in very fine script... Click for details
